Yeah, he probably thinks the year is 1982 right now. I'm sure if you followed the Dead around back in the day you'd be confused as well from all of the drugs.

Short but sweet
buscameby - you do realize this show is from '72, right?
Anyway, it's a good set. The sound is good and I'd rate it higher, but it's only partial show.

78' a good but not great year.
I saw all the Rocks shows in 78' and htey were definetly havin some fun this year but the music was tighter in 77'.
Still worth the listen, decent audiance quality.

Second try: 8-25-72 Where Are You?
I attended all 4 nites. This was the best of those 4. Many rave about 8-27-72 being the king of GD shows, but for me, this was my apex show until 1977. The first set has a legion of on-stage tech problems. Jerry addresses the audience quite a bit even informing us that Bobby had "roses for lunch." They do a quick hint at "Stars and Stripes Forever" between tech probs and also a short "Frozen Logger." Great versions of Black Throated, Loser, Down the Line and He's Gone. Phat white Strat Jerry, great 3-4 part singing, best concert sound I had ever experienced. You could hear every nuance, every whisper on stage. Perfect separation and balance. Every instrument comes through with irradiating presence. Their singing was exceptional that night. They made very few vocal or instrumental flubs. It was as close to a flawless performance as any show in the GD's history. The song after El Paso that night was Jack Straw and it was exquisite. The Playing that ended the first set was immaculate with both guitar parts perfectly played. I distinctly recall the second set was a monster with long, explorative jams fore and aft Other One>Comes a Time and continued tight ensemble. Jerry's guitar on Comes so poignant every one around us was crying tears of flooding joy. Have since learned that Betty just ran out of 2 track tape that night. If anyone out there could locate an AUD version of this great great show I would be beholding. I failed on this night to write down the setlist order in my journal because my girlfriend was feeling faint and I could not keep copious notes while trying to care for her. This may be the one phantom show for all times. They ran out of tape and I ran out of words.
